Although we contacted the seller in October, we weren’t initially keen on either travelling across the country just for a car, or buying it sight unseen. However, over a Christmas vacation together (and perhaps enough BEvERages) we decided to go for it (and also convinced my mother it was a good idea). Thanks to the helpful seller, the Mini was packaged up and shipped...

Walking up from London Bridge tube, it would have been rather impressive for me to have missed the hoards of motorcycles, engines purring, rolling into Borough Market. The underlying growl of over 600 motorcycles arriving could be heard over the usual sounds of the morning London traffic. I had to be careful not to catch myself on various handlebars sticking precariously out into the narrow-formed gangways.

As I headed towards the press center, the air was embroidered with a variety of smells from cooking bacon-breakfast rolls wafting from one of the many food vans to exhaust fumes from the Jaguar D-Types with mechanics swarming about.

Max Chilton, Jason Plato, Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean), and Nick Mason (Pink Floyd's drummer). Other notable racers in attendance included Sir Stirling Moss, Sir Jackie Stewart, and the equally great Mr. John Surtees.

Their rugged tailoring, durability, and lack of pretense made them the preferred jacket of icons like Mr. Steve McQueen and Mr. T.E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia).

I have this old English car thing. There is no cure or twelve-step program. The only therapy is a constant flow of rusted English steel and cracked fiberglass. I’m convinced it was Dad’s fault. It started when I was still in diapers. He was the first on our block in the ‘50s to own a foreign car. I think he was way cool before way cool existed.

And so it went with one Triumph besting another over the next few years until ultimately, the Gyronaut X-1 entered the scene in 1966. The fairing, designed by famed stylist Mr. Alex Tremulis (he worked for Cord, Duesenberg, Ford, and Tucker), was built by Mr. Vince Gardner (of Cord 810 fame) and would eventually set the bar for future streamliners...
